Beering ha habido más de una de las principales pocos incidentes en almacenamiento que han ocurrido en los últimos 17 años, como el que en 1995, cuando Timothy McVeigh alojados los suministros en una instalación de almacenamiento de nitrato de amonio bomba que utiliza para destruir el edificio federal Murrah en Oklahoma City, o en 2007 cuando las autoridades de Georgia arrestaron a un veterano del ejército que habían colocado bombas, granadas, C-4 y una variedad de armas en una unidad de almacenamiento de Georgia de vacaciones Valdosta.
Incluso aunque la mayoría Nashville instalaciones de almacenamiento están equipados con el Estado del Arte de la web Cámaras de Vigilancia, sistemas de iluminación exterior e interior, y pasar control que bloquea la palabra y el perfil de cerraduras de alta, la delincuencia en las instalaciones de almacenamiento nunca será erradicada del 100%.
StorPlace Self Storage almacenamiento está equipado con la antes mencionados y mucho más, pero la mejor manera de reducir la delincuencia de almacenamiento de vacaciones en el área de Nashville es trabajar estrechamente con el departamento local de policía de Nashville. Peter Beering ayuda a apreciar este hecho, escribió esto en un compartimiento de almacenamiento”Autolos operadores de almacenamiento y su personal deben desarrollar y mantener relaciones con todos los oficiales de seguridad pública responsables de sus áreas, incluyendo los agentes de policía que patrullan sus áreas, el departamento de bomberos, agencia de manejo de emergencia, y el departamento de salud. Estas relaciones pueden ser falsificados, invitando a estos funcionarios a la instalación de un viaje, comprar comida, o visitando la estación de bomberos. Si bien tales gestos simples parecer trivial, que puede ser de gran ayuda al operador cuando surgen dudas, si hay investigaciones oficiales, o si se necesita ayuda.
“En adicional a nuestros precauciones habituales, StorPlace Libre de almacenamiento se han asociado con las autoridades locales de Nashville para ayudar a mantener nuestros inquilinos a salvo mientras están utilizando nuestras instalaciones de almacenamiento. Metro de la policía de Nashville oficiales de patrulla al azar nuestros días las instalaciones y noche para ayudar a reducir la delincuencia.

Un veterano oficial de policía de 22 años afirmó que”ladelincuencia no es un problema policial, se trata de un problema de la comunidad, y por lo tanto requiere una solución de la comunidad. La policía es una parte vital de la comunidad, pero no pueden hacerlo solos. Necesitan socios de la comunidad, los propietarios de negocios responsables y gestores que están dispuestos a ayudarles a luchar contra la delincuencia “.

StorPlace Offering More Covered Parking: Why Covered Parking?

With the economy still in a downhill spiral we find ourselves instead of discarding our belongings, we are realizing it is to our advantage to maintain them. We take our vehicles to the repair shop instead of replacing them, and after we put our hard earned dollars into them we must have a safe storage place to have them stored.

Now this is only one scenario, maybe we are on the other end of the spectrum. Recreational vehicles and boat prices are now at an all time low, if we have the money to spend why not purchase that long desired adult toy. (Recreational Vehicles, Boats, Motor Cycles, Jet Skis Etc). Many people reason, “If I can afford it now is the time to purchase it, and after I buy it, where will I put it”? The solution is simple. Find a clean, safe self storage facility in your area that has covered parking at a reasonable price and you are set.

You might ask yourself “Why do I need covered parking”? The reason that troubles us the most is lack of space. Many homeowners have downsized, and the ever popular Condominiums, Townhomes, and Apartment Complex many times will allow you only two parking spaces. Not to mention the families who have found it necessary to share their home with relatives. Households in the United States on average have 2.28 vehicles, and that was based on single households. Where will they put any extra Cars/ RVs /Boats? Is self storage an option?
Another reason to consider StorPlace Self Storage for your extra vehicle is the price. Recreation vehicles range from approximately $6000.00 to well above $500.000.00. Investments such as these are well worth protecting, not to mention having it stored in a secure self storage facility that is gated with a manager living on property and where there is 24 hour site surveillance.

The last reason is the extreme weather Tennessee experiences from time to time such as the Tornados we have had in the past. So if you don’t have a safe, secure location for your extra vehicle please come by one of our storage facilities and check out our covered parking.
Three StorPlace Self Storage Centers in Nashville/Hermitage now have State of the Art Covered RV Parking; Storplace Self Storage on Old Hickory Blvd. at Nolensville Rd., Storplace Self Storage on Murfreesboro Rd. , both conveniently located in Nashville, TN. and Storplace Self Storage in Hermitage, Tennessee.

The reasons people store their belongings vary. Some may be storing because they are moving and their new home or apartment is not ready. They may have to vacate before they can move into their new home so they will need a place to put their belongings while they wait for their new home to be ready.

Other reasons people store may be that they are moving into a smaller home and storing furniture, clothes or small decorative items that they won’t have room for.

During the holidays, people may store gifts that they don’t want family members to discover until the actual holiday.

Whatever reasons a person uses self storage, or however long they may use self storage, they are expecting their belongings to be safe and sound and in the same condition as when they began storing.

The following are ways you can ensure your belongings will be in good condition if you find you need to store in a self storage unit:
? Wrap all breakable dishes and pack tightly
? Cover mattresses in plastic covers and secure with tape
? Cover wood furniture with blankets so as not to scratch
? Furniture with material should be covered with plastic
? Place photos, important documents and other paper items in sealable plastic bags and place in tubs with tight fitting lids.
? Clothes should be wrapped in plastic, put in storage boxes and taped
? Electronics, leather furniture, and other items that may be heat and cold sensitive, should be stored in temperature controlled units.
? Vehicles stored in units for long periods of time, should be raised so that the tires are not touching the ground.

Whatever items you may be storing, for however long you may be storing, you should insure that you have properly packed, sealed or boxed your items in storage boxes so as not to let bugs, rodents or weather destroy your belongings.

If you have any doubts as to how to properly store a certain item, feel free to contact StorPlace.

Once you have all your belongings packed safely, securely and in the proper storage unit for your needs, then you may begin to pack the unit. This is also something that needs to be done with lots of forethought so as to make unpacking or taking a few items at a time from your unit, as easy as possible.

You may be able to store certain couches on end to save as much space as possible. But some couches may not stand this way. In this case, a larger unit may be needed.

Boxes should be clearly marked as to what is inside. If you needed to get to those items, you will find that helpful on the stacking of the boxes. Boxes should be stacked as high as possible with the heaviest on the bottom.

Keep any items you think you may need to remove early from your storage, to the front of the unit for easy removal.

StorPlace Self Storage Provides Helpful Hints on How to Protect Your Belongings

When using a self storage facility always take precautions. Don’t assume your belongings are safe just because they are on a concrete slab with walls, a roof and a door. Sure the storage units have a nice secured door on them, but let’s face it; there are other things to consider. Even if the storage facility has fencing around it, chain link or otherwise and also has state of the art security cameras, your storage unit could still fall victim to burglary.

StorPlace Helping to Protect Your Storage

Protecting your belongings while they are in storage is a good concern for many people as they are transitioning through their current situation. Whether you are moving, getting some extra room or storing a loved one’s belongings, most people want to know that their items are safe and secure.
First thing is shop around and look for a few clues to making sure that you are choosing the best facility for you. Make sure the property is surrounded by a fence or wall. Make sure the facility is well lighted at night so you may want to drive by the property at night. Check that the storage facility has a monthly pest control service and get the name of the pest control company and call them and verify that they do indeed have this service. Cameras are very important for a storage facility to have in place as it deters any type of criminal activity.
Next take a look at the locking mechanism on the unit doors themselves and make sure it meets your Idea of secure. By far the best locking system used is a cylinder lock as bolt cutters cannot be used to remove this lock.
Criminals are looking for the easiest way in and out so why would they want to come to StorPlace Self Storage that is using a cylinder locking system when they could drive down the road and get into a different storage facility that just uses pad locks. With that being said if you must use a pad lock, make sure it is a disc lock.
Also take a look at the property’s gate system and make sure that it has a large/tall gate and uses a code to get into the property and just as important a code to get back out. If a criminal was to follow someone through the gate, you would want them to get stuck inside the property so that they will be busted by the police while still on the property.
Now let’s get to how to place your items in the storage unit so that it will deter criminal activity. First place all big valuable items towards that back of the unit. This serves as a deterrent .If a criminal was to get in your unit, they will assume that there is nothing worth stealing or even if they can see the valuables ,they will not take the time to unload your storage unit.
Now that the criminal element has been discussed, let’s talk about how to store your items to protect them from the elements. First of all if your items are going to be in the unit for more than a couple of months or if you have any items that are temperature sensitive, you may want to consider temperature controlled. Whether you go with temperature controlled or not , there are some pointers that can really save you from damage later.
First find some pallets or shelves and get your storage boxes off the floor. Concrete sweats and you don’t want that moisture getting into the boxes. Next do not stack your boxes on top of wooden furniture without placing a sheet or blanket on top of the wood furniture so that the boxes are not sitting directly on the wood.
Next get some “damp rid”. This item will remove moisture from the air in your unit and prevent any mold or mildew. Damp rid is sold at StorPlace Self Storage and as a tenant you can get 10% off retail items. With that being said, make sure you check and replace the damp rid once a month or it could cause more problems than not using it at all. Boxes are very important as to the safety and protection of your items. Always use new boxes when you are stacking them in the unit so that they are strong and will not fall down in the unit or fall on you if you are in the unit. Again these new boxes can be purchased at StorPlace Self Storage at a 10 percent client discount.
